Paper Glaze Techniques – Picket Fence Studios

Hello, crafty friends! I hope the hustle and bustle of the holiday season is leaving you some time to create. I know it is hard to find spare time this time of year. I was able to find some time to break out these Picket Fence Studio Paper Glaze products and give them a try. I took advantage of their great Black Friday Sale and ordered a bunch of them. It is always fun to play around with new products. I have a YouTube video on my channel that shows me learning about these paper glazes and then I finish some cards. Watch the video, here.

I used stencils, one I made myself, and die cut from cardstock that had a layer of paper glaze on it. I love the feel, shine and texture of the glaze when it dries. It is very beautiful. It dries very pliable so does not crack when you die cut it once dried or even when you bend it.

A couple things I learned is that it dries fairly quickly and once dry it is there forever. So clean up quickly. I had baby wipes right next to me to wipe down my worksurface and tools immediately. I took the stencils to the sink to soak them in warm soapy (I used mild hand soap) to help remove the paper glaze.

I made 4 cards and had several more panels ready for more projects. I ink blended several panels then used stencils and paper glaze on them. I also stenciled several colors of paper glaze to create a variegated snowflake panel. Just make sure when using more than one color to stencil with that you do not accidently contaminate a jar with a different color. Clean your palette knife well between colors. I also die cut images after the paper glaze dried. They all die cut beautifully.

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you are inspired to try some of paper glaze and other mixed media products that is available. I am not a mixed media card maker but products like these make it easy to branch out more. Make sure to watch my video, here.
